There's not really any need for me to write much here, beyond noting that this morning was a very foggy one. Thankfully Justin Terveen got out in front of the fog, and he sent us these shots.

They say a picture speaks a thousand words. This picture poses a thousand questions.
This morning, Texas Governor Rick Perry tweeted a photo encapsulating what is no doubt a very special approach to international relations. The picture largely speaks for itself, but let's ponder some of the major questions.

Dallas Photographer Mike Mezeul Captured the Best "Blood Moon" Photo of All

Mike Mezeul II
If you didn't stay up late on Monday night to witness the "Blood Moon," fear not. The cosmos have conveniently scheduled three reruns over the next two years. Can't wait six months? Observer freelancer Mike Mezeul II has you covered.

He's the guy who shot the time-lapse photo you've probably already seen on your social media feed. (When my mother-in-law posts it on her Facebook feed, describing it as merely "viral" is woefully inadequate.)

The Baltimore Sun's photography blog caught up with Mezeul for an explanation of how he did it. Short answer: He stood out in the cold for a really long time.

At Bank of America Plaza, the Lights Are No Longer Neon or Green

The official unveiling of the new lights on Bank of America Plaza (aka that green building downtown) isn't for another two weeks. But those fortunate enough to be traversing downtown in the predawn hours Wednesday morning were treated to a brief preview.

Dallas Councilman Philip Kingston Is Going as Angela Hunt for Halloween, and It's Terrifying

via Facebook
This photo, of Councilman Philip Kingston and his predecessor Angela Hunt (or vice versa?) was posted on Facebook over the weekend. "I do not make an attractive woman, but my legs are dead sexy," Kingston said of his attire on his Facebook page. We sincerely hope this is a Halloween costume and not his new wardrobe.

The Cowboys Are Still America's Team, but It's the Worst Possible Version of America (Photo)

An hour before the kickoff of the Cowboys' season at AT&T Stadium Sunday night, three American icons posed for a photo. If a weirder three-pack of American icons has ever posed for photo, we haven't seen it.

Weirder still is the placement of the Hulkster's hand near Jerry's crotch. We're not sure what's going on here, just that we hope to God it's not the beginning of another Hulk Hogan sex tape.

Update: Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia missed the photo op but is also a Cowboys fan.
